Lehman Township is a Second Class Township governed by a Board of Supervisors, which are elected at large by the qualified voters of the Township. Each Board of Supervisors is elected for the term of six years. Their responsibilities include: to establish commissions and authorities, to maintain the roads, to prepare the building and zoning regulations, and to ensure that the community’s health, safety and welfare needs are adequately addressed. The Township Secretary/Treasurer, who is appointed by the Board of Supervisors, is in charge of all Township monies.
